Americans may take access to fertility treatments and the myriad of ways to create a family — even welcoming twiblings — for granted in the states. But across the pond, one couple is making headlines with their announcement to open the UK's first surrogacy center for same-sex parents-to-be. Barrie and Tony Drewitt-Barlow have been in the press since they were named on the birth certificates of their now 11-year-old twins born via surrogate. The couple have since welcomed three more children, and the center will enable other people to do the same. Barrie Drewitt-Barlow said:
Its aim is to bring together intended parents with egg donors and surrogate, along with sperm donors, and offer legal advice from qualified legal professionals.
The British Surrogacy Agency will have a second office in San Francisco.
